According to this article, Samsung might be well on its way to using CyanogenMOD 7 on its smartphones. I use a custom CM7 on my HD2 and love it. It can only be a good thing for Samsung phones.

I think people are taking this the wrong way. Rather than Samsung selling the phone with CM7 preloaded they are simply encouraging the community to support it with custom ROMs...in this case Cyanogenmod.

Am I wrong?

That's exactly what they want.The guy who mentioned Samsung phones selling with CM just meant that he wishes it'd be so.
At least I think so...

Exactly.
They gave one guy a free phone, they're not officially supporting CyanogenMod.


Call my cynical but I think this is just a shrewd piece of marketing.
It curries favour with people who have an interest in modding and will probably boost sales of the Galaxy S2 in such circles, especially with those who are firm CM fans.

It's no different to giving away freebies to 'celebs', except this might actually boost sales for them.

It's a good ploy. I certainly wouldn't buy a device now unless it was CM supported.
